Melanie Griffith takes to twitter to support daughter Dakota Johnson in her new role as Ana from 50 Shades of Grey
Melanie Griffith is understandably a proud mother, so it's no surprise that she has jumped to her daughter's defence this week after Dakota Johnson landed the lead role of Ana in the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
The 56-year-old actress has slammed Twitter trolls who sent nasty messages regarding the news that Dakota Johnson will be playing Anastasia Steele in the upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
In response to one of the nastier tweets, Griffith wrote: "Wow! You're quite the b**** aren't you? #dontmesswithmama."
Last week, she'd expressed how proud she was by tweeting: "My beautiful child Dakota has been chosen to play Anna Steele in 50 Shades!!! Look out world! Here she comes!!! #proudmama."
Dakota Johnson will play shy student Ana and that Charlie Hunnam would take on the role of Christian Grey.
Unfortunately, not all fans of the books agree with Sam Taylor-Wood's choices, as she is the one directing the movie.
"I don't think Dakota is good for it..... But Charlie would be perfect," one fan wrote on Facebook, while another said: "Hunnam could be a decent Grey with a little makeover. But who in the heck thought Johnson could make a beautiful Anastasia? I'm all of sudden not as interested in seeing this movie."
The 23-year-old blonde has previously starred in films such as '21 Jump Street' and 'The Five Year Engagement.'
The film adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey' is expected to be released some time next year.
